    He looks great! Just like he did yesterday, the day before and the day before, etc.

    Could you be any more obsessed Jared?

  • Zola24

    JJ – Alexander looks great as usual, but am starting to feel a little uneasy and like a “virtual” stalker as Alex no longer looks as carefree and relaxed as when he first hit NYC, so how about leaving the guy in peace for a few days – I/we’ll survive.

  • Debbie

    Well hello again Smiley Skars. Nice to see that grin given the paps haven’t left him alone in NY. Oh, and it’s such a shame vamps can’t have a tan, as he looks so much nicer without the white make up.

    Look how smile @_@ lai.

    You just ok

  • Ryan

    I don’t usually comment of JustJared, but I had to because Alexander Skarsgard is getting a bit over-blown. I’m about to remove JustJared off my RSS feeds…

  • AGAIN?

    What a famewh0re…
    How can some people say there is not agreement here?
    Because he is not Pitt/Dicaprio/, they actually get papped.

  • Jen

    Yeah, I could look at him all day, but JJ should leave him alone now. Just knowing he is out there happy and beige free is enough for me. No need for daily updates, as appreciated as they are!.

  • pamela coloma

    he is hot and i luv him!!!

  • http://j.com kà simply amazing

    jared love him alot. What season5 ?? Not finish

  • http://j.com kà simply amazing

    nice to see his happy with glasess

  • http://B Slig o lambert ^____^cute

    I know how you dace

  • Macey

    You guys do realize that it isn’t JJ following him around right? It’s not only JJ that is making posts. The paps get shots and then sell them to magazines and sites. JJ isn’t hounding him, he’s just one of the sites buying the shots.

    And if you wanna look at a papho then look at Gerry Butler on the top of your page. That guy is on every day and he’s currently photographed shirtless INSIDE a gym lockeroom with his tongue hanging out. It’s one thing to have paps take pics of you walking somewhere, it’s another to be inside a private locker room taking photos.

  • Canuck

    JJ… Muah for the better info on this post, rather than a rehash. AS looks utterly edible, as usual. The man is smokng hot.

  • Fran

    So damn hot!

  • mailey

    i like this outfit.

  • Lolala

    @AGAIN?:

    Yeah but he’s much hotter than those three put together lol. If you don’t like him DON’T read about him and don’t comment either, don’t even give thumbs up or down otherwise you appear stooooopid and jealous ;)

  • YouBetYa

    Whos the blond? me likey.

  • karon

    Ah I’m so pissed…i was by the set trying to get a glimpse of him during my lunch break. I finally had to go back to work and of course he comes out like 10 min after I leave…hopefully I will get another chance.

  • Macey

    Hahaha, this guy is teeny weent and trying to hug Alexander and he’s like WTF?

  • melissa

    loving the pics of him but lately JJ you have been posting too much pics of alex skarsgard im not saying you should stop but like you dont have to post pics of him everyday and the paps should give him a break let the man have some privacy!! btw sooo excited that true blood picked up another season!!! i cant wait to see what they have in store for us for season 5 im keeping fingers crossed that we will get to see much more eric and sookie and less of bill sry cnt stand him never liked bill in the books n i dnt like him in the show dnt judge peeps im just sharing my opioion :)

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    He does look smoking hot! I’m loving all these pics. LOL at his “work” outfit being virtually the same as his regular outfits. I guess his wardrobe must be pretty easy.

  • Jen

    @Macey:
    Yup, aware it’s not actually JJ following him, but he’s the only one posting about him everyday (at least at the sites I visit). Lovin’ it, don’t get me wrong, but we don’t need daily posts of him when there is no story. Just leave the brutally hot man alone unless there is an actual story!.

  • Why?

    Why is it when I said yesterday the Alex posts were overkill my post gets deleted and then today there are other people saying the same thing. Give the guy a break. I know JJ isn’t following him around but he’s PAYING for the pictures which makes the paps go back for more. So give it a break. He looks the same everyday anyway. Not that he looks bad but he just hasn’t changed so no need to over-expose him, stalk him, etc. People talk about the LA pap scene being bad but Alex can hide in LA when he wants but since landing in NYC he’s been papped EVERYday.

  • Holic

    OMG THAT SMILE !
    Love him <3

  • Cookiecrisps

    I met him today at this set shoot. He was nice to me, but nervous. The paps started yelling at each other cuz one of the other paps blocked a money shot. Alex looked at me and said, I should go before a fight breaks out. I was like, hell yeah, I’m gotta here.

  • Routine

    The paps are getting shots of him coming and going from his hotel. Not so hard to figure out, eh? So, its not that hard to track him. That’s why there are so many shots PLUS his filming locations are being posted on the Net. If fans can find him, the paps can do it as well.

  • Cheryl

    Poor Alex. All those paps. How awful.

  • Joyce

    WHO’S THE BLONDE CHICK???!!!

  • Zola24

    @Macey: Yes, obviously realise that. Totally agree with Jen, (9 & 22), and other posters – daily updates are not required.

  • Marieme

    Good to know he and Bag O’Bones are on opposite coasts otherwise she’d be all over that Swedish pancake.

  • Sole

    @Marieme:
    Me too, but it would be fun to see the desperation… hehe

  • Zola24

    JJ – Do you read our comments – who knows? Now post has more than the original 4 photos of AS heading to his movie shoot and now includes 6 of the actual movie shoot. Yay, this is legitimate news and thanks.

  • http://twilightdevil.blogg.se Anna

    he looks just as good as he did a couple of hours ago when I got to meet him! <3

  • Dani

    @Joyce:

    I assume the actress playing Margo maybe, or someone on the set that works for the movie?

    ANYONE know??

  • Camille

    @Jen:
    Actually other gossip pages have him pretty much daily too, like Popsugar and the Superficial. They do it because he sells well. Plus like someone else said it’s not hard to track him because they know his shooting locations and hotel.

  • Camille

    LOL Dlisted’s take on what someone posted earlier.

    how long before he hooks up with his co-star

    LOL some people think this blond girl looks like KB’s twin. WTF?

  • Camille
  • Marieme

    Sole @ 08/11/2011 at 8:09 pm #33

    Haha! No kidding. A shot of her with something other than that cat who ate the canary sh it grin is a rare thing. Ain’t it?

  • ladybug

    @Camille: Not boney enough! I think another blogger thought she bore a resemblance to Elisha Cuthbert, I have no idea who she actually is.

  • Marieme

    Hazmat @ 08/11/2011 at 4:32 pm #2

    Um Hazmat, does the name Rachel Boring Bilson mean anything to you? Nuff said.

  • Marieme

    Cookiecrisps and Camille – how awesome! Lucky gals!

    Cookie, nothing could have pried me away if I had been that close! What are you thinking? Lol.

    Camillie, thanks for the pics! So handsome.

  • Dani

    @Camille:

    Actually she could be her sister, which is hilarious, but she is not that attractive imo. Sorry to sound rude just sayin……

    But omg the blonde stringy hair & shape with a bit more meat on her bones, she does bare a strong resemblence to KB, this must be a nightmare for Alex LMAO

    Also she kind of looks like Anna Farris imo.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    She looks more like Elisha Cuthbert than KB for sure! Those girls are smoking something if they think she’s KB’s twin. Good grief!

    @Marieme:
    Oh that’s not me, LOL! It’s a fan who got her picture taken and I was just posting it. I wish I had my own picture. I’d like to see how handsome he is in person. Everyone who has met him says he’s much more handsome in the flesh.

    @Dani:
    I don’t think she looks like KB at all. This girl has nice hair, it’s not stringy in the last. It looks healthy and this girl has an actual body. Ladybug is right, she looks like Elisha Cuthbert way more.

  • Camille

    Yeah sorry, she looks nothing like KB at all. Actually she looks like Emma Stone a bit here.
